Not wanting to restart the same argument again, but for the benefit of
the OP: these exist almost exclusively to enable Unix mail servers to
protect Windows mail clients from Windows viruses (but yes, they will
come in handy if in the future Unix-like systems should be targeted by
and prove vulnerable to email viruses)

Again to the OP: if you search the list archives (use
"" on google or use, you will find all
possible arguments about the "linux virus?" argument in the archive :)
